Bridging RVA

Connecting individuals, groups & causes to advance common good in our community.

Bridging RVA is officially incorporated with the state of Virginia and is a listed 501c3 charitable organization with the IRS. All donations are tax-deductible.

We're Better Together!

When community forms out of an ordeal, challenge, task or mission, people often discover one another in new and significant ways. Neighbors become friends; and co-workers become team players. Bridging RVA is all about connecting individuals, groups & causes to bridge empty spaces in our community.  Here's how it works!

Community Impact - Rapid Response - Impact Groups - Ideation Labs - Make a Donation


Community Impact

We're making a bigger difference locally by connecting individuals, groups, companies and causes to address the needs of our community. Connect with one of our initiatives or share an initiative with us; and lets partner together.

So many wonderful organizations are already doing awesome things in the RVA. Rather than reinventing the wheel and creating new programs, let's come together in support of those already doing good works in our community. We're better together!

Check out some of our Upcoming Events.

This video tells the story of our last community impact initiative. We have more community impact initiatives in the works, stay tuned..... We'd be more than glad to help your group find a task, challenge or mission in the RVA. Lots of work to be done in our community.


Rapid Response

Things happen in our community which elicit a rapid response by people who care. Our goal is to create a network of people and groups who can quickly mobilize and respond to needs within our community. As a way to stay informed, be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Click on the picture to watch a montage of several "Rapid Response" stories reported by WRIC News. Let's go! Are you game?

Impact Groups

We're created for community! Impact groups provide a way for people to connect with others who share similar ideas and passions to serve the community. Whether it's feeding the hungry, teaching financial literacy, addressing an injustice, sharing a particular hobby, exploring matters of faith, dealing with divorce or learning how to function better as a team, our goal is to create safe places in our community where ALL PEOPLE are welcomed and invited to connect.
